More about SART:
As San Antonio has grown, the answer to our transit problems has been more and more and more roads. Dizzyingly complicated flyovers, extra lanes, complex bypasses. And yet, every year the traffic gets worse and our roads get deadlier and deadlier. We spend more and more hours in our cars but we don’t seem to get anywhere fast. Gas prices continue to skyrocket, making even idling in traffic an expensive proposition.
Our leaders seem to think the problem is “how do we move more cars through our city”, but the real problem should be “how do we have fewer cars on the roads?” Ultimately, there is only one answer: mass transit.
That San Antonio is the largest city in the United States without ANY rail-based mass transit should be an embarrassment. That San Antonio, the seventh largest city in America has no metro, light rail, streetcars, tramways, trolleybuses, or even people movers should be scandalous. This is especially true when we realize that cities less than half our size, like Memphis, Oklahoma City, Portland, and Seattle, have systems.
San Antonians for Rail Transit (SART) is a group dedicated to promoting safe, effective rail options at every level for San Antonio. We are not opposed to bus systems but realize that in a city of over a million, even the best-managed bus system is simply not sufficient. Modern transit requires a multi-modal approach, maximizing the benefits of each form of transit.
